        Being a finer oil with less friction, it makes sense that it'll run cooler.
        Less friction - less heat.
        Motul 300v is factory racing for performance. It's mostly for tracks. You can clearly notice the change in performance than the motul 7100 , heat is also much more than motul 7100.

          If we use bajaj oil it's much cooler than these two but it is waste in other aspects. It will give vibrations.

              I think it wont work. Sun films are manufactured to keep off passing sunlight, thus reducing the heat we recieve from sun. Here the heat is from radiator fan, hot air flowing out of it. Sun film would not reduce temperature of it in any manner.

              Please refer to the wikipedia link on how sun film works. Window insulation film - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

But then nakeds are supposed to be hot and its something you get acclimated to. Just my 2 cents and apologies if I have offended anyone's feeling. Cheers

                  I don't mean to sound rude, but please read the already open threads and not be lazy. Nobody is going to give a custom answer when enough of the same has already been discussed in multiple threads.

                    You may visit overdrive.com and check out the review posted by then which is thorough, check out the even more thorough review by MG in the other 390
                    Thread, or simply watch this

                      I don't know what you are getting at, but reading it did not convince me of your argument. It may that I am that dense , but, the portion I read seemed to be summarized in this line:
                      "Window films are an extremely cost-effective method to reduce heating and cooling costs in existing buildings by reducing the amount of heat transfer through glazing. "
                      Need I say anything further?

                      On a separate note Shumi also adds somethings about the road test here:

                        Hey guys!


                        I've just posted a MRA RNB windscreen review with ride report for KTM Duke on a separate thread. These things get buried in ownership threads within a day or two.

                        http://www.xbhp.com/talkies/general-...-ktm-duke.html

                        For those who are into touring or often have highway trips at higher speeds - it's great help against a wind blast. Makes a ride much, much easier.
                        And I'm pretty sure you can expect to raise your top speed by some 10 kmh with it because of much improved wind resistance.

                        Here's some photos, the rest are in the review thread.

                            Wonder why do we have reviews in an ownership thread?
